Sunday Riley's Good Genes Cleared up My Skin in 3 Minutes

This week’s “Editor’s Pick” includes 1.5K 5-star reviews on Sephora.

You may or may not be acquainted with Sunday Riley. Those who are, swear to its Good Genes.

The label on the bottle reads with great conviction, ”Clinically tested and proven to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes.” For those – like me – who have spent their entire lives, testing out new products with high expectations and no measurable markers, I approached those allegations with skepticism. Three minutes is an unusually short time span, and one that would normally encourage disappointment.

But alas, it worked.

WHAT IS IT:  Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment


Apply one to two pumps to clean skin and layer your usual moisturizer over. The smell is disconcerting, but it will quickly evaporate leaving in its stead, clearer skin. You will notice immediate results that include brighter and smoother skin, but long-term results will require repeated use. It alleviates dull-texture, dark spots and wrinkles to boot. The secret is lactic acid which erases pore-clogging dead skin cells on all skin types and ages.

I’ve used Good Genes over a month now, thrice a week, and the tightened, brightness is no understatement. That, and Ole Henrikson’s Cold Plunge Pore Mask together are summer skincare grails.

There is no denying its price, and Good Genes is a luxury beauty product. One Sephora user put it, “It works just grit your teeth through the money spending.” There are currently 1.5 5-star reviews on the site, in tribute to its overnight results.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: Pick up Sunday Riley’s Good Genes at Sephora, where it prices out at $105 USD (30 mL). The value size is $185 USD (50 mL).
